Understanding the Damage Done by Improper Surgery
Responsible hospitals and doctors have gone to great lengths to set up rigorous procedures for avoiding wrong site surgery. During preoperative preparation, surgeons and their staff are required to take special steps to ensure that they are operating on the correct location.
Wrong site surgery can do extremely serious damage to the patient. For instance, removing the wrong organ can make it impossible for the patient ever to have surgery on the correct organ.
Even if a procedure performed at the wrong location does not prevent the patient from eventually being operated on in the correct location, it can cause unnecessary pain and suffering, as well as the risks of infections and blood clots associated with any surgical operation.
